3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a 650ml bottle. Pours a big frothy beige head and has a hazy golden appearance. Thick dirty sticky lacing. Aromas are quite citrusy, piney, floral and herbal hops. A bit yeasty as well. Flavours are also very much on the citrus and bitter hops side. Quite a bit of yeasty notes as well as bready malts. Has a full bodied mouthfeel. Smooth and creamy texture. Average carbonation. Astringent and slightly bitter finish. Easy to drink and hoppy enough for my tastes. Really doesn’t seem like an impy IPA to me though (bottle says 8.5%).

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
650ml bottle. Milky golden body, small white head, average to poor retention. Delicious aroma of stone fruits, orange caramels, resins, tons of malt, very floral. Taste is equally satisfying: piney, orange candies, honey, grapefruit zest. Bold and sweet.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650mL bottle, sent from wilco (thanks a lot, Mike), pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Nose brings out fresh citrus and resinous hops, some pine, oranges, and a big caramel malt backbone. Flavour brings out bitter citrus rinds, resinous hops, a touch of tropical fruits, and a big caramel malt backbone that never cloys. Big n bold, with a thick malt backbone providing ample balance for the truckload of hops. Excellent.

Can - 473ml. Hazy golden body with a lasting, white frothy head. Fresh hoppy aroma with mango, citrusy, and herbal hints. Its sharp hoppy taste carries herbal, woody, and citrusy notes. Ends with a long bitter finish. Nice.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Liquide doré. Belle mousse qui laisse une dentelle. Nez de clémentines, de mandarines, de cèdre et de pin avec des parfums céréaliers minimalement sucrés. Goût floral et résineux qui manque de fruits juteux. Présence en bouche correcte. Effervescence normalisée. Finale de notes amères resineuses et florales assez collantes. Bon mais loin du spectacle. Je préfère lorsque ça goûte davantage les fruits.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber from LCBO. Clear light copper with no head. Floral hop and light pine aroma, fair amount of caramel and biscuit malt, some bittersweet grapefruit, booze, some hoppy nail polish characteristics (although not is not totally fair but its what comes to mind). Low carbonation, moderate+ body, bitter but with a boozy sweetness, tropical fruit on the finish along with a fair amount of malt. Will have to try another bottle or this on tap to see if its the beer or this specific bottle that doesn’t do it for me. For now much prefer the karma citra.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Filtered deep gold body with a white head that leaves gorgeous lacing in the glass.
The nostrils are almost stung by the citrus fruits pouring off this one. There is some rich caramel malt lurking in the background though. Also some vegetal qualities as it warms.
The palate is creamy, but cleansing. Tastes are like biting down hard on bitter fruits. Grapefruit is dominant, but it has lots more going on than that.
The 8.5% abv hides itself well. A highly quaffable, highly dangerous brew!
